After completing their preparations with an eight wicket loss to their neighbours Mallards, Riding Mill have named their XI for games one and two of their virtual tour down under. Andy Watson is named to skipper the side against the Burrabadine XI which is expected to provide a good opportunity for the tourists to acclimatise to the conditions on what promises to be an exciting tour consisting of ten fixtures over the next month.
For the late game against the Cricket Library Podcast Invitational XI, Liam James will take over as skipper with a few players rotating out of the side. Managing the squad for a tour of this length will be a challenge and ensuring players maintain peak condition will no doubt be a priority for the visitors.
The hosts have been slowly announcing signings for the tour openers with plenty of speculation on twitter as to who the final marquee player will be. Fortunately, for those who have been busting to find out, it appears there will be an announcement made at 9:30am EST in Australia on ABC Radio in the Riverina.
Stay tuned as more news will be filtering through as we move closer to the opening fixture of this historic dice cricket virtual tour.
